It is very rare these days that an El Clasico ends without a controversy and yesterday’s clash was nothing short of excitement. The match ended in a 2-2 draw thanks to the contributions from the superstars of either team Messi and Ronaldo.
Barca have been named as a diving club by their opponent fans and Sergio Busquets is in the heart of those controversies mainly after last year’s El Clasico showdown. While the player has some what changed his attitude towards the game, his team mates are trying a trick or two. Last week’s match against Sevilla saw former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas do a bizzare theataric move than stunned many.
This time its their star Spanish midfielder Andres Iniesta who attempted to win a penalty. Furious with the midfielder’s activities, Real Madrid defender Pepe blasted Iniesta .
Pepe gave Iniesta both barrels in the immediate aftermath and also blasted the player’s antics in the mixed zone after the game.
“People can see on TV that Iniesta did it himself. There was no penalty. Also, the way he fell … c’mon, rolling over and over. It’s sad,” rapped Pepe.
“Yeah, he’d do well in the theatre!”
Well it is said to be a modern tactics deployed by the managers but this has to be stopped if people wants to see quality football.
